Keith Hay of the Lifeboat Launch Authority said: “This is one of the highlights of the year at Kinghorn, where many of the crew and their friends run these walks, getting dressed up in their best black clothes to usher and scare many supporters!

“Fundraising is vital to the RNLI with running costs and equipment funded entirely by events and donations.

“This year we have been particularly busy with nearly 80 callouts so far.

“Our volunteers are putting in a tremendous effort to make sure the event is as scary and exciting as possible!”

He continued: “There will also be activities in the boathouse including dooking for apples and face-painting, and any children who come along in fancy dress will be rewarded with a free sweet! After the walk you can relax in the Morgue Café where refreshments will be served.”
